(“Columbia”).

Under the terms of the transaction, Intermountain shareholders will receive 0.6426 shares of Columbia common stock and $2.2930 in cash for each share of Intermountain stock they own, representing a value of approximately $18.22 per share based on Columbia’s closing price as of July 23, 2014.
